I've owned this Blazer since it waS new. About to turn over 100k miles. Just put on the 3rd set of tires. Not a lot of problems for a vehicle that old, but here is a list of problems I've had: Excessive paint chips since it was new, entire car repainted by dealer. 4WD is currently intermittent due to a vacuum problem. Leaking coolant. Replaced fuel sender. Hazard/brakelight/turn signal switch bad, intermittent brake lights. Replaced 3 speakers. Body molding coming off. Hoses to oil filter leaking. Climate control diverter is messed up, delayed in switching from floor to defrost, etc. probably due to vacuum leak. Never a MAJOR problem though.....
Leather seats, CD. Ease of oil change. 100k tune up.
Recall the turn signal switch, 4WD problem, Oil filter hoses, fuel sender. These are all common KNOWN problems with this vehicle.
Had nothing but problems almost from day one. Power steering leaked, oil leaked, cooling system leaked and always rattled going down the highway. I liked the interior and they way it was laid out but there was always something going wrong engine wise. Replaced alternator, power steering pump and it loved to chew thru serpentine belts. If it didn't break the belt, it squeeled so loud you had to replace it or wear ear plugs while driving. Had ball joints replaced and had problems with the brake light not working. Ended up being a switch near the floor board that had to be taken apart about every month and cleaned out then brake lights worked again. Not enough pwr to tow anything big.
I liked the interior design
Quality is the worst ever. Always had a problem with this vechile.
This was a good vehicle. I bought it
with 162K miles and it now has 180k
miles. It was very reliable and
didn't leave me stranded. The motor
is still powerful after 180K miles,
but it could use new suspension parts.
Engine, Interior, Overall a good
Better suspension on the standard
model. Fix rear window squeaking.
I bought this suv from my father, (the
first owner) he had problems with it
since it was new, It had 35,00 miles
on when i took it, well, you name it
has broke, transmission had to be
replaced,contol switches, the outside
mirrors just fell off,rattles,gas
gauge dont work,alt,haz button,turn
signal switch, window motors,cooling
system,ac leaks,paint is peeling
off,braking system is weak, washer
bottle leaks, the four wheel drive
stopped working (two repairs),and too
many things to let me list here, it
seems that my wife calls me a least
once every two weeks and tells me
something else is wrong with the
blazer. I have always been a chevy
fan, not anymore.
